At Salem Inn, Eve and Brady reel when they hear that Theresa is suing Brady for full custody of Tate. They rush to confront Theresa.
At JJ’s place, JJ cautions Theresa that taking Tate from Brady is “harsh.” Theresa knows but says Brady threatened her with the same thing. She thinks it’s the best thing for Tate though JJ thinks it’s solely about revenge. Theresa starts to cry and insists she’s protecting her rights. Talk turns to Lani losing her baby. Theresa hastens him to see Lani but he’ll wait. Theresa feels for Lani. Brady and Eve show up, enraged by Theresa’s lawsuit. JJ lets them in and Brady asks if she’s out of her mind. They have a yelling match and Brady’s unable to persuade her to change her mind. JJ moves to back Theresa and reminds them both of the sacrifice she made for him and Tate. If Brady had treated her with respect, maybe Theresa wouldn’t have resorted to this.

In Lani’s room, Lani sobs as she demands to see her son. She needs to hold him once. Eli begs her to wait until she feels stronger but in the end, convinces him to get their son. He goes to explain this to their parents and Val says that’s natural to want to say goodbye. She goes to get the baby while Eli and Abe go to Lani’s side. Val appears with the baby. Eli holds him and almost crumbles, then Lani holds him and coos and tells him how much she loves him. They agree they’d have named him David Abraham Grant. Father Louis drops by to deliver the last rites for David.
